The Twenty-First Annual Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant
is open to any qualified attending female member of the 2020 Treklanta
who is at least 18 years of age and who agrees to abide by the rules
of this contest as posted here, now and in the future. There
is NO registration fee or any additional cost to participate.
Membership in or affiliation with any Klingon-oriented organization
(i.e., KAG, KLAW, etc.) is not required.
in the 2020 Miss Klingon Empire Beauty Pageant will be judged
in three separate categories. They include:
Contestants will be judged
on the quality and professionalism of their costumes, make-up
and "modeling." Contestants may assume the identity of any
Klingon female character from any incarnation of Star Trek
or any original Klingon persona of their own creation. Contestants
will be asked to walk a runway in their Klingon persona.
Poise, grace and the authenticity of her persona will be the criteria
Contestants will be allowed NO MORE THAN FIVE MINUTES to
demonstrate a talent or skill. Contestants may sing, dance,
act, perform or make any other type of presentation that demonstrates
a talent or skill so long as the presentation does not endanger
herself, other contestants, the master of ceremonies, the judges
or the audience. (In other words, no flaming bat'leth twirling,
etc.) Contestants are encouraged but not required to present
a Klingon-themed talent or skill. Originality and the authenticity
of her persona will be the criteria for judging. Contestants
must disclose to the Treklanta staff their talent act intentions
prior to the convention for planning purposes, but such information
will be kept strictly confidential. Audio, video or other
technical equipment needed for a specific talent presentation
can usually be provided with sufficient advance notice.
Each contestant will either be asked a question to which she must
respond. Contestants who dodge, avoid or refuse to
answer the question will be disqualified. The authenticity
of her answer or performance, and of her persona, will be the
criteria for judging.
